USA singer Joe Francis' new album Soliloquy releases Friday 10th July, on La Conoscenza label as advertised on TV channels Sky Arts, Alibi and TCM.

Tracks include the Sinatra and Crosby duet from Cole Porter musical High Society, where he sings both parts – Well Did You Evah?

The title track Soliloquy is from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel. Eight minutes and twenty seconds is a long time to get your tonsils around key changes, as well as acting the part of Billy Bigelow and dealing with some tongue-twisting lyrics.

Clementine is an arrangement by Bobby Darin which is a jazz variation on the original Oh My Darling Clementine. The Coffee Song charts the story of this daily beverage in Brazil.
